We stopped here for a few one night on a night time wander through this area. Tourists are welcome but this is very much a local institution so don't expect special treatment and you will enjoy yourself. If you go make the effort with a dobry den when you enter, take a seat (or find somewhere to stand) give a... More

A traditional local pub near The Castle serving probably the best Pilsner beer in Prague and also great beer meals such as pickled cheese, pickled sausages, grilled pork knuckle, etc. Usually crowded and very authentic indeed. Don't expect to be treated nicely nor spoken to in English. Just grab a beer and enjoy it.

Ideal traditional pub in the castle district, the right place for a few Pilsner on the go. It's too crowded sometimes, but the beer is excellent.

Found this bar after a tip off from the taxi driver who picked us up at the airport. So glad we did, it was full of locals with just a smattering of tourists. The beer was good, didn't eat but the food we saw looked delicious. A must if visiting Prague!

Really disappointed this has A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Rating. Went last night-Monday night and couldn't get served. The bartender was nasty and said he didn't understand Beer. Then, he would laugh. If they only want to serve locals, they should have a sign up. Be rude and blatenly not serving someone is plain rude. He was plain obnoxious. We... More

As we were on a private tour in Prague, we asked our guide to take us to a tradtional Czech food place, where the locals go. So we got to Pivnice U Hrocha, very small and cute little place, food was very good and service was good too. I took pictures that I would share if I could :) Great... More

Smoky pub with an unforgettable atmosphere and quirky bartenders. Excellent beer, non-smoking bar, where if you want to smoke you have to pay to Hippo (jelly). Unique experience.

I have a friend and colleague from Prague, so when we visited, he treated us to one of those tucked away treasures that you rarely find (unless you are looking!). The comments recently are spot on, even if I didn't read them first! Jan asked me to rate the place as terrible as that way, non-locals stay away!! This really... More

A typical Czech beer place = small, crowded, with dense cigarette smoke and not the friendliest of staff, but - the beer is amazing!!! Don't take your wife/GF/mother with your unless they are beer nuts (or better yet leave them at a nearby café) but go and have 1 or two and taste hot the true Czech Pilsner should taste!

Stumbled across this place whilst walking from the castle to the bridge. Innitially I was put off due to the clouds of cigerette smoke I could see as I opened the door, but as the Mrs is in charge I went on in and we were immediatly greeted by one of the bar chaps. He pointed for us to sit... More
